BABY GRAND AND SALVO Win the Seagram and Rothschild Cups, Respectively. AVakc Up Equals "Woodbine Mile Record Perkiomcns Steeplechase Victory Duo to Crawfords Riding. TORONTO, Ont., September 25. Todays feature at the Woodbine included two cup races, one the Seagram Cup Handicap and the other the Rothschild Cup Handicap. The former was for horses the bona-fide property of owners resident in Canada and the other for Canadian-bred horses. J. K. L. Ross, the Montreal sportsman, furnished the winner of the Seagram Cup in his honest little racer Baby Grand, while the colors of George M. Hendrie were carried to victory in the Rothschild Cup by Salvo. Baby Grand made all of the pace and won in rather easy fashion from Brilliant Jester. Salvo came from behind in his race and beat Diadema by a length. Baby Grands victory netted his stable ,450, while Salvos race was worth ,400. A surprisingly large gathering turned out to witness the sport. While the attendance was not as large as on Saturday, it was a record one for a Monday and long before the running of the opening dash programs were at a premium. Jockey Turner rode two winners Baby Grand and Patchwork. Both led their opponents throughout and had something to spare at the end. Wake Up, which raced for the Kentucky turfman Rome Respess, equaled the Woodbine record for the mile when she won the sixth race and ran the distance in 1:39. Wake Up came from behind and won going away from Roulette. She was ridden by M. Fator, who also scored with two of his other mounts, Honeys Jewel and Salvo. Perkiomens victory in the steeplechase was due to jockey Crawfords superior horsemanship. He clearly outrode the other jockeys when it came to the finish. Veitch, who had the mount on Red Clover, bungled the latter throughout and almost fell off a couple of times during the running. Jockey Anderson was fined 5 and suspended for two days for cutting across in front of the others in the second race and knocking Hallucination out of it. J. S. Baldwin will ship Lucky Pearl and Galloway from here to Kenilworth Park. James Arthur disposed of the platers Chick and Peggy D. to Thomas Francis. Francis will ship this pair and also Kingling and Charlie Leydecker, the property of Arthur, from here to Chicago. HORSES LEAVE FOR CHICAGO. Two carloads of horses left for Chicago this morning. The consignment included the stable of W. C. Weant, William Walker and R. Doyle. A Swinke has completed arrangements to ship his string to Laurel Wednesday evening. George Phillips disposed of the plater Comme Ci at private sale to J. P. Smith. Phillips sent his horses from here to Latonia and J. S. Ownbey shipped the J. II. Louch-hoim racers to Kentucky in the same car. Jockey M. Garrett was suspended for three days by the starter for disobedience while at the post. A. V. Thomas has taken over the apprentice rider E. Renzetti for the coming winter. Renzetti is under contract to the Brook-dale Stable. Azrael came out of his last race lame and will be on the shelf for a few days. W. A. McKinney is contemplating sending his horses to Cuba next winter. The increased added money to the overnight events at Oriental Park this winter is bringing excellent results and racing at Havana should be better than ever. Thomas Hodge secured by private purchase from Mrs. Livingston the two-year-old High Heels. Steeplechasing has proved so popular at the Woodbine this fall that the management has decided to put on two of these races on the closing day of the meeting.
